I did not read all the pages but I cannot be the only person who has a 4 year degree and certifications on top of that. I didn't want to put other, so I chose 4 year.

I said other.

BA in History
BEd in Junior/Intermediate History
Reading and Special Education Specialists

I am debating a Master's but I am not sure I want to do it in Education. I think I would like to do it in International Relations or something like that. I think I need to deschool for awhile.

Thanks for the welcome! Actually, I'm pedo. I did a GPR prior to my pedo residency. My husband is ortho. Looks like we're a bunch of 2 dentist families! Everyone thinks I'm crazy to be married to another dentist. It's not like we don't have anything else to talk about besides dentistry!
PS I was beginning to wonder if everyone on here was a lawyer!

B.S. and M.Ag. in Botany.

The Master's was a consolation prize. I had been in a Ph.D. program in Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology for 18 months when I got pregnant, and decided to take the opportunity to get out with a non-thesis Master's degree rather than trying to complete the Ph.D. in a lab I did not want to be in doing work that was not what I wanted to do after all.

BS in Math, Masters in Education.

No more degrees for me in the next 15-20 years, but after that, who knows! I'm not interested in a PhD in educ, but there are lots of other fields I find interesting, and I like taking classes. I can see myself starting a new career after the kids are grown.

I voted PhD, but its actually MD, MPH. Close enough, I figured.

BS: Molecular Biology
MD, I practice neonatology and am a university prof
MPH: My research is in breastfeeding epidemiology.

choose other, as I'm *working* toward a year long certificate. not sure I will go back for the second year, but will probably do online courses.
post #136 of 145
B.S. Biology, minor in environmental studies (started out as a pre-vet major)

M.A. Interdisciplinary Studies- focused on cultural landscapes

A.A. Native American Studies (how that happened is totally beyond me)

Working on second B.S. in natural resources (started out in Parks and Rec. management, but recently changed majors) with minors in anthropology and writing. After that's finished, I'll probably do a second M.S. in nonformal science education.

Whew! Will it ever be over???? I think I'm one of those people who will always be in school!!

HS grad w/ a semester of college - they kicked me out Ok I make that sound bad...it was a paperwork/technical error that factored into my gpa and plummeted it. I thought about fighting it but I felt like I wasn't accomplishing anything there anyways and just wanted to start over elsewhere.

Before I started over I ended up becoming a mom.
